New York, NY – Hosted by Geraldo Rivera, the launch party for #1 New York Times Bestselling author Mike Walkers latest novel was a hit. The legendary National Enquirer columnist holds some clout in the gossip world and heavy-hitters Richard Johnson (Page Six) and Lachlan Cartwright (NY Daily News Confidention) were seen prowling the crowd while a live jazz quartet played in the background, the perfect setting to build a slightly eery vibe for the launch of a vampire tale.
The full title of Mike Walker’s latest novel is “Out For Blood: Private Diary of a Gossip Vampire”, the party took place at Ivy Bar and Grill on Monday, November 4, 2013.
In Out For Blood, the latest book from veteran National Enquirer “Guru of Gossip” Mike Walker, the term “deadline” takes new meaning. Out For Blood’s atypical hero, Clark, has a to-die-for secret: he’s the undead! Flying the night skies to spy on Tinseltown’s sexiest stars and consistently scooping his industry cohorts, with a killer career as gossip-in-residence at the National Revealer, Clark has long stood to be one of Hollywood’s most feared men…which is to say nothing of his razor-sharp bite. But when a sex tape scandal with smokin’ hot starlet/tabloid terror TayLo Logan leads him into a nefarious murder plot that threatens everything he holds dear – including his beloved Revealer post – it’s high time for the real fangs to come out.
An uproariously funny, satirical and surprisingly thought-provoking romp through the sex, lies, and videotape that make the Hollywood gossip machine go ‘round, Out For Blood is a novel that only the likes of Walker could write.
At the book launch party, Mike Walker, Geraldo Rivera and his wife Erica Levy were joined by many close friends and the media elite for cocktails and hors d’oeuvres at Ivy Bar and Grill, including New York Post columnist Richard Johnson, New York Observer writer Ben Widdicombe, Executive Producer of The Geraldo Rivera Radio Network Marty Berman, New York Daily News Confidenti@l gossip columnist Lachlan Cartwright, Vanity Fair contributing editor John Connolly, entertainment reporter Bill McCuddy, Inside Edition special correspondent Rita Cosby, Susie Coelho (ex-wife of Sonny Bono), creator of Eyewitness News Albert T. Primo, philanthropist Jean Shafiroff and Resident Magazine editor-in-chief Christopher Pape.
Out For Blood is widely available via all major online retailers and select brick-and-morter booksellers as of October 31st, 2013.
